It's a great phone Sat...i hav'nt thrown it on the floor yet in a temper tantrum to test survivabilty but no doubt it's time will come. I like it for the high quality 2 megapixel camera. Just perfect when you come accross Police State thingies on your travels and you have forgotton your main camera. I find that digital phones give me a head ache where the old CDMA or Analouge phones do not?
My previous phone was smashed in an infantile rage at full velocity onto a tiled floor and has served me well. Note extra special "silver duct tape" backing. This prevents snooping. Very high tech. That pile of disks are your's Drak.
On the subject of snooping...
The new "Zone Alarm" monitors program activity in the background and brings up interesting things like this...
I can understand the Microsoft Media Keyboard but not the other and I might add i've had about 6 different programs doing this. Of course i'm just being paranoid...right? Just like it was paranoid to believe that all new mobile phones had built in snooping devices?
At the press of a button in the local phone exchange they can listen in even when the phone is off.
Analouge or CDMA phones are harder to bug as you notice the battery level drop rapidly and a few cheap gadgets from a spy shop can easily tell when the phone is transmitting suspiciously.
On the subject of "Zone Alarm". It is distributed by a company called "Check Point" who also do "Spy Sweeper" and a few others.
It was bought out by an Israeli company a few years back. This same Israeli company bought out the German company who was doing the retrieval of the WTC Hard Disks...which we have never seen...funny that.
Mike Ruppert also recommends this software and this company. Hmmmm...i could start a viscous rumour.
